Google and Microsoft are one of the topmost organizations ever in this world. Both are multinational organizations. Their products are used worldwide and daily also. It is one of the biggest collaboration ever!
Microsoft was generated by Bill Gates and Paul Allen at the date of April 4, 1975. It was developed to support Basic interpreters to Altair 8800 which was the first residential useable as well as a personally useable microcomputer. Its best-known software products are the Microsoft Windows, line of operating systems, the Microsoft OfficeSuite, etc.
Two Ph.D. students Larry Page and Sergey Brin invented Google LLC in September 1998. It provides internet-related services and products like online advertising technologies, a search engine, cloud computing, etc. Google search engine is mostly used.
Usual Steps for Introducing an App on Google Play Store:
Most of the popular app and services are based on the web and do their best efforts to cover every base (and aspect). These apps have Windows-specific features. These apps cannot be able to run on web browsers and they are not available as PWA (Progressive Web Apps). The two of the best and large software vendors are working togetherly to make PWAs more like the first-class citizens of the Google Play Store.
What are the Web-Based or (Native) Apps and PWAs?
These are the apps that compile in the language of the microprocessor for e.g most of the games can be played on PC only.
PWAs are the apps that are intended to work on Android.
Tool Made By Microsoft:
Microsoft introduced PWABuilder which helps the developers to build PWAs from existing websites and publish them in app stores.
Tool Made By Google:
Google organized Bubblewrap, the library is used to produce and sign Google Play Stores from PWAs.
Following are some reasons and outcomes of collaboration:
- Microsoft wants to cover up the deficiency of apps on its stores by letting existing web apps issue there as PWAs.
- Publish apps that also run across Android, desktop, tablet, and more.
- Turning websites into PWA and the enhanced controls and app-like functionality.
- Also, due to this big collaboration, now, publishing to the Google Play Store, is becoming easier and easier.
Main these organizations are joined to work on several projects like Microsoft first android “Surface Duo” and a grammar and spell checker the “Windows Spell-checker”.
It is a good approach. These collaborations will change the mechanism and phenomenon of technology. According to me, it is an appreciable and revolutionary step.
